Ep 523 | Lane Kiffin, Ole Miss Discrimination Lawsuit Reveals Brokenness of College Athletics
Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss are facing a $40 million lawsuit fortified by a secret recording a player made of his meeting with Kiffin. DeSanto Rollins, a reserve defensive tackle for the Rebels, alleges he was discriminated against by Kiffin and the university over requesting a break and citing a “mental health crisis.” Jason admits the transcript of the privately recorded meeting between the coach and player is not a good look for Kiffin. The entire situation is a reflection of a broader problem in college athletics and society. The perfect storm of name, image, and likeness, the transfer portal, Title IX, and fatherlessness has destroyed men’s college sports. Rollins asserts that a female athlete would have been treated differently in the situation, a point that Jason admits is the strongest part of his case but also emblematic of an emasculated society. Former SEC wideout and “Fearless” contributor T.J. Moe joins the show to offer his insights and unvarnished opinion on Kiffin and Rollins. Plus, Steve Kim chimes in on that situation, the Bills’ Stefon Diggs pushing back against a reporter's “hurtful” comments regarding the star receiver, and Philly’s Jalen Hurts' slow start to the season and his confrontation with A.J. Brown on Thursday Night Football. Are the Eagles in trouble despite being undefeated? Jason and Steve duel it out over Coach Prime and Colorado’s “Rocky Mountain Showdown” with Colorado State after Whitlock puts Deion and his Buffaloes on upset alert.
